Good Hotel Guide Review

With its light footprint, floor-to-ceiling windows and stainless steel roof, this sustainably built hotel on the castle ramparts chimes with Nottingham’s ambition to be the UK’s first carbon-neutral city. Tim and Stefa Hart, who offer country luxury par excellence at Hambleton Hall, Hambleton (see entry), have created a chic urban counterpart with all their values of service, good food and local engagement. Rooms range from doubles overlooking an internal courtyard, to family suites, many with views over the gardens and leafy neighbourhood. Dog owners do best to book a room with outdoor seating and direct garden access. None is huge (‘You wouldn’t come here for spacious accommodation,’ a Guide trusty has advised), but you can take afternoon tea in the bar, alfresco, or in your room via room service, with snacks available all day. In the restaurant, Martin Sludds’s short menus might include grilled plaice with burnt caper butter; gnocchi, wild garlic, morels, miso butter. At breakfast there is freshly squeezed orange juice, bread from Hambleton Bakery, free-range eggs, Melton Mowbray sausages and bacon. (RG)

A clear choice for business travellers or those visiting offspring at the university. Very personable receptionist. Breakfast was good. - RG
